I’ve never made it this far out on a bike ride before. Once I got home and mapped it, I realized that I did an 11 mile bike ride (I normally only do around 8 miles). It felt pretty good, even if I did rush a bit to get home before the thunderstorms hit later that afternoon!
This shit right up here…for those of you who don’t know what’s next to my foot, it’s cottonwood. Every year when this stuff blooms, I get insanely sick. I’m not sure if I’m actually allergic to it, or if it just happens to bloom during a high-pollen time of the spring. Either way, I know that once I see it floating around in the air, it’s gonna be a rough week or two.
I’ve done okay this week in spite of my allergies, but I know it’s something I have to contend with whenever I work out outdoors. The rest of this week I’ve stayed inside, mostly because it’s hard to get out after work, but I still got a few workouts in. I’m looking forward to today and tomorrow, and hopefully I can get back out there. Gas prices did just jump over $4/gallon here…so it might be a week of indoor workouts instead!
Yes, even after pushing myself harder than I usually do, I have to say it felt good. It felt good to sweat my brains out, and see how far I could push myself. Sure, I was a little sore the next day, but it wasn’t that bad.
I’ll also show you tomorrow what new workout I’ve been trying out this week. D. got me a very, very nice birthday present that’s exercise-related, and I used my birthday money from my parents to update my workout wardrobe a bit, but we’ll get to that tomorrow. I’m really excited to show you all!
Have a great Thursday everyone!
